Portman has a great qtr of raising money

Portman has raised over $2.3 million dollars in the first quarter of 2010, giving him a very strong advantage over the Democratic challenger, whomever it may be.

Lee Fisher, of course, slams Portman’s fundraising number as coming from “the lobbyists and and PACs” so he can come across as the champion of the little guy. But when asked in the article what was the difference between Portman’s fundraising and the fact that Fisher also raised money from PACs and lobbyists, here’s what he says:

…..said he will not raise as much from such sources because they have already sided with Portman.

So it’s ok for Democrats to raise money from special interests only if they get to them first? If not, then it’s bad. I understand.

Can Democrats please get off of the high-horse when it comes to raising money? Many act like the Republicans are the only ones that get money this way. Last I checked, unions do qualify as a special interest group, and Dems got millions from them.

And please Democrats, give Fisher the nomination. Not like Brunner would be all that tough, but if Fisher was the nominee, Portman wouldn’t have to break a sweat.
